Blog Entries With Tag: candy

Well, here's my entry for today's topic of CHECK -  for more of the topics for each day this month during National Diabetes Awareness Month or NDAM - see Kerri Sparling's link for all the details (e.g. use the hash tag of #dmpad in your posts in various areas the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) post in)

UPDATE for my posts/pictures - they are going to be scattered due to amount of time I have on my hands - it all depends on my story behind the picture (I like to sometimes put explicit details in my picture posts LOL). Diabetes1.org won't allow me to use the hyperlinks for Twitter/Facebook/G+ - but just search for me under FatCatAnna you will ALWAYS be able to find my contributions at these places if it's not posted here at this website!

I woke up with a low blood sugar (#BGnow) this morning - this was even after PIGGING out on some of the leftover candy bars we had from Halloween (so much for buying a large box of chocolates - when only 10 Trick or Treaters came by on Halloween).

I am terrible when I'm around sweet things - I swear - REALLY I DO - they talk to me.  I cannot resist them.  I do justify the amount of insulin to eat them - but with my latest weight issue - hmmm - not good.

Here's my blood sugar 4 hours later (10.1 mmol/l or 180 mg/dl) - I hadn't given any insulin coverage (bolus - for meals - my basal insulin still does it' job in the background on my pump) - so not bad for what I'd nibbled on for breakfast ...

NB:  DH has now hidden the chocolate bars safely away from me - even if I'm foaming at the mouth angry/spitting/screaming - unless he feels I should have one - he is to resist my pleas for CANDY!!!  I am not the Tazmanian devil (the picture below is what was on my door Halloween night).

Also, you can find my entry for Day 1 - PAST - at this link - and it's abit of a shocker (it was for me) - a hint - my A1C number back in '94.

Taz screaming I WANT MY CANDY (really - I'm not THAT bad - or am I?)

Whenever we'd go on a road trip - my Mum would always pack snacks - not just for me because of my having diabetes - but for all of us.  Often it saved stopping off - wasting time to get to our final destination (usually to the coast for a holiday).  Also, it saved money by not stopping off at a restaurant.  Eating a road side park was always abit of fun - to run around - let some steam off (so my brother wouldn't contemplate more ways to kill me in the back seat of the car as I kept on bugging him - I mean what are siblings for?).

I've always carried on that tradition (not bugging my passenger(s)) - when we go on a road / air trip - I pack our own food (with air travel I'm abit limited - but still do it - food at the airport is tres cher).  When it comes to a road trip tho' - it's a great time to fill up bags with nibbles that I don't usually keep at home - you know - for those boring highway periods - and you get that snack attack (provided that your BG's are in a good zone - since sometimes being inactive can make my BG go up abit).

So, I'm heading off to Boston for the Canadian long w/e with my DH - and one of my treats I've just bagged up - is 15 gram of pure carb delight - Garden Veggie Straws.  I'll also cut up some healthy veggies - diced up cheese - and a few cans of diet pop.  Oh and who can forget the "sweets" for the road trip!  My fav are sour lemon drops made by Sorbee - only 3 of them have 15 grams of carbs (about 50% of what regular sugar candies have).  Now of course, this doesn't mean I'll be sucking on these sugar free candies every nanosecond.  You have to remember - sugar free does not mean - CALORIE FREE - it all adds up in the end!

What nibbles do you like to pack for the road trip?  I'm curious to know what teases your pallet when you're winding through country roads to your destination!
